It's All In The Details.......

When I'm really in my zone with my camera, I just love shooting details.  They are easy to miss sometimes because of the "job at hand", trying to capture "the big picture" and make everyone happy but sometimes we as photographers need to capture a little something for ourselves in the process.

I took this shot last year during a shoot just because I loved the way the bangles matched the Saree and how the white background just sort of made them glow and come alive.  Most people will blow right past a shot like this but when I see this I see "Art" and I'm ok with this "Art" being just for me.  It might make it onto my studio wall so I don't forget the importance/significant of shooting details or another side of beauty that we often don't associate with beauty.......

Here's to the details.......

Half Saree #3

Last week I had the opportunity to shoot a "Half Saree" event for an Indian family.  This was the third event of this type that I've done and I've had the opportunity to see a couple of the young ladies grow up which is really awesome!!!!!!!  It is very special to see all of the families come together to bless and support the family and the joy exhibited throughout the event.

I hope to do many more of these here in the local community and abroad and to watch these young ladies grow into women.

Little Women

These two little women captured my eye on "Day 1" at the Kral wedding rehearsal and were the epitomy of cuteness througout the weekend.  They were so excited about the day and looked very cute in their dresses.  In this picture they were gazing out from the hotel room down to the front entrance.  It was so cool as they called out "We See Marines", as they caught a glimpse of the groom and his brother dressed in their "Marine" dress blues.  The moment was so cool that I had to get this shot.  More from this wedding soon.

Shoot What You Love.......

A couple years ago, I had the opportunity to meet Shefali; a woman with as much if not more inner beauty then she has on the outside.  Since then, I feel like I've become part of the family shooting her sister Amish and meeting her parents on a couple different occasions.

There are times when I photograph people, I love to shoot details of their beauty, clothing, etc; this was one of those times.  Shefali was wearing one of her beautiful Sarees and I took very detailed shots of her bangles, earrings, lips, etc.  I didn't crop these in photoshot but used a long lens to capture what was most appealing to me.  This is an example of one of those shots.......

With Spring time coming, I plan to get my "Same Sun" project back in full swing.  This image has got to find it into the book project in some shape, form or fashion.  Stay true to your passions and "shoot what you love".

It All Starts with the Dress

Looking back, this will be one of the most amazing wedding photo's I've ever taken. I am looking forward to many more ahead.
